    Jakarta: The Education and Culture Ministry has shut down services at several museums, galleries, and cultural heritages to contain the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (covid-19).

    "Several museums, galleries, and cultural heritages are shut down for the time being to prevent the spread of COVID-19," Education and Culture Minister Nadiem Makarim remarked in a press statement made available to ANTARA here on Monday, March 16, 2020.

    According to him, restricting visitors to museums is part of the preventive measures that his ministry has adopted to contain the spread of this deadly virus in public areas.

    Despite this decision, the community members can gain access to several museums and sites in Indonesia through the platform of Google Arts and Culture owing to the ministry's recent cooperation with Google.

    With the availability of this platform, the shutdown of museums over covid-19 would not affect those keen on gaining information on Indonesia’s cultures.

    The community members can also experience virtual reality through their smartphones through the use of Google Arts and Culture, he pointed out. (Antara)
